Welcome to the University of Derby Netball Page!
We’re an all – inclusive club, so whether you haven’t played since school, train with the England Roses or have never picked up a netball before, there’s a place in UDNC for you! We have won Club of the Year 2016-2018 & Most Charitable for the past 7 years!
We have 3 BUCS teams who all play competitively to represent Team Derby against other universities, but if social netball is more your thing, then we also have a Development Team – for the girls who love netball but don’t want to compete. Our development girls still play in friendlies against other universities, and we also organise a team to play in Willows every week! On top of this, this year we began Ally’s League, which is an external league for our honorary 4th team! So there is still plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in game play on some level!
Alternatively, if you fancy joining us just to come to training, then that’s fine too! Our teams train each week, training often consists of drills, fitness and gameplay in a non-competitive atmosphere, so there is something for everyone! It’s a brilliant chance for you to develop your old skills as well as developing new ones! Training is run by our 3 amazing coaches, Ash, Jo & Ally.
(TRAINING TIMES TBA)
At UDNC, we work hard, but play harder! Our social secs run weekly Wednesday socials followed by a night in Popworld. Social themes differ each week so it never gets boring, we also have joint socials with other sports teams regularly, giving our members the chance to get to know even more of Team Derby! At the end of the year, we all then head off on TOUR – guaranteed to be the best week of the year! If drinking isn’t your thing, we also host sober socials, including bowling, movie nights and games nights.
We host 2 main events throughout the year. Spookabout is our Halloween event, which we co-host with Derby Dance Team & then we run a charity event in the 2nd semester, these have previously included last year’s ‘Wild West’ where all proceeds were given to Dementia UK. Charity is something which we care deeply about so we try our best to do as much fundraising through the year as possible, including quizzes, ‘Charioke’, a skydive and an abseil down Derby Cathedral!
We’re always active across our socials so don’t hesitate to give us a message on any of them if you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you!!
